These super sharp steel Pruning Shears are designed and produced entirely in Japan by skilled craftsmen in Tsubame-Sanjo, an area famous for its metal and wood works. Meticulously handmade using traditional metal crafting techniques these elegant yet efficient shears are up for even the toughest tasks. They’re made using a special kind of Japanese steel that lends itself to exceptional sharpness and rust resistance.

Care: Wipe the blade with a soft cloth, then oil with vegetable or machine oil to prevent rust.


We chose to bring you these specific Japanese tools because we admire the maker’s 70+ years of expertise, extraordinary craftsmanship, and use of high-quality materials. Family owned since 1950, Asano Mokkousho was born of the union between Teisuke Asano, a farmer’s son, and his wife, Sakae Sasagawa, daughter of a Tokyo manufacturer. Asano wanted to make farmers’ lives easier by designing and crafting high-quality tools while city dweller Sakae wanted to share her love of nature. They melded their rural and metropolitan values and together founded Asano Mokkousho. Seven decades later the company exports a broad range of authentic Japanese gardening tools all over the world. Designers and human engineers continuously refine the company’s original designs to reflect the needs of the user, ensuring each tool is as comfortable to use as it is efficient. (Read more)

High quality

As a former professional horticulturist I used Japanese made tools often because of their high quality and durability. These are so well made and will stand the test of time. Worth every cent!

Great pruning shears

I decided to treat myself to these pruning shears. Should have done it years ago. They are a joy to use (and to look at).

Pruning shears

I always wanted to splurge on a good pair of pruning shears but always somehow did not. I’m older now and my hands are not as strong and these are so wonderful they make up for that. Why did I wait so long? LOL they are super sharp and easy to use

Superb Cutting

Wow! Decided to spend a little extra based on web reviews of Japanese made pruning shears and worth every penny. Great fit in hand, precise cutting and smooth motion yield a very clean cut. And super happy with Bloomist’s speed in shipping.
